Heat maps and interpolation in QGIS
This workshop will explore interpolation and heat mapping tools in the free open source software QGIS. Many phenomena are continuous (for example: elevation, soils, temperatures) but data on these subjects are collected in discrete locations as points. Interpolation is a commonly used GIS technique to create continuous surface from discrete points – a way of transforming vector data into raster data. Heat mapping is a method of taking point data and showing intensity of occurrences in an attractive raster format.
